Buying Orlando Theme Park Tickets

The Tickets

Choosing and buying the right type of tickets is often a key part of booking any Orlando holiday. It’s important to think about how long you will be there for, which theme parks you’d like to visit, and any tickets you could do without.  There can be low season, mid-season, and high season price variations, so look out for those, and you could also find price variations depending on who you book with. Options include:

Booking through official ticket sellers such as Visit Orlando.
Booking through the Walt Disney World website with the Walt Disney Travel Company.
Tickets can also be bought through the Universal Orlando website.

All the above options also include sections for booking flights, hotels, and holiday packages, so you may find this helps when you are pricing up your holiday or looking for offers. You can also buy your attraction tickets from a travel agent or other official ticket seller.  Here are a few examples of ticket types:

Disney 14 Day Ultimate Ticket: This is the big gun among the ticket options, offering unlimited admission to 4 theme parks and 2 water parks. Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Blizzard Beach, and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon are included, along with a golf course, miniature golf, and an indoor interactive theme park. There is also a 21 day version of this ticket.
Disney’s 7 Day Premium Ticket: Unlimited Entry to the 4 main Disney theme parks, plus 7 admissions to the Disney water parks.

These Disney offers are available from the Walt Disney website, and include free travel on the well-known Walt Disney World monorails, motor coaches, and water taxis. These travel incentives are also typically available if you stay in a resort hotel.

If that wasn’t enough theme park excitement for you, then there are always the Orlando Flex Ticket options which offer something a little bit different to the Disney experience. Choose the standard Orlando Flex Ticket and you will book unlimited access to 5 theme parks which are: Universal’s Islands Of Adventure, the exciting Universal Studios Florida, including the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter, Wet n Wild, Seaworld Orlando, and their water park Aquatica. If you opt for the Orlando Flex Ticket Plus option, then you can also experience the rides and animal attractions at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

That’s just a selection of some of the ticket options you may be able to choose from. You can find other combinations and special deals, and individual tickets for attractions like Discovery Cove, where you can swim with Dolphins, or for something different, why not visit Kennedy Space Center.
